Marriott + DragonCon = FAIL

POST EDIT: I have a room at the Sheraton. I have discovered that the majority of All My Favorite People (TM) also have booked rooms at the Sheraton. Coupled with the fact that there will be no loud revelers at 4 am to disturb my meager sleep (I get very little at the Con, which is my own fault), I have decided this is in fact superior to my previously planned convention, and am happy with my situation. Thank everyone, for listening. You all rock.

I have been on hold with the Marriott for over an hour. In the time it took for me to log on to the reservations website and get out my credit card, the rooms were all booked. I figured if I got up at 7, called, then got on the phone at 8 like the lady told me, that would make a difference. So no rooms for Jennie and Happygoth at the Marriott for DragonCon. If you’ve got extras, we need one. Bad. Last person who did this got a steak dinner and a drink out of the deal (and ceosanna , you’re still completely awesome). I’m going to troll the lists for open rooms, but this is what we’ve got at the moment. Nada.

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.
